Is preboot right? You can't boot the DVD, nor USB, it's not a problem of grub. –  Braiam Jan 1 at 11:44

Without knowing exactly what you did I would guess you have broken your boot loader.

Look at this question and try the second method How can I repair grub? (How to get Ubuntu back after installing Windows?)

boot from live cd and run these commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
